Matthew Scoggins, BMC Director of Operations, elaborates how Baker Motor Company values employees:

“The company shows its employees that they are valued by recognizing achievement at our company wide employee luncheons, in newsletters and through travel opportunities, tickets to concerts and special events and through one-on-one conversations. During our employee luncheons, key employees are given trophies for their success and a gift card to local restaurants and shopping destinations. The company strongly encourages managers to recognize their employees.”

This national acknowledgement is no surprise to the Momentum Marketing team. Agency principal, Pam Hartley said, “Tommy Baker has such an incredible commitment to providing a quality workplace for each of his team members.

Momentum Marketing Gears up for the 2014 Charleston Basket Brigade

charleston basket brigadeThe Charleston Basket Brigade is very near and dear to the Momentum team. Our Agency Principal, Pam Hartley, co-founded the charity and since its conception, has delivered hundreds of thousands of people in the Lowcountry a hearty meal for Thanksgiving.

The goal this year is to raise $100,000 to feed 3,300 families (appx 20,000 residents) a complete Thanksgiving meal including turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, and more. To do so, we’ve teamed up with several events throughout Charleston to spread the message and raise funds for the charity.

Our client, The Coastal Cupboard is hosting a Charity Knife Sharpening event from Thursday, October 30th to Sunday, November 2nd. Each knife will be $1 to sharpen and every single dollar will support the Charleston Basket Brigade’s efforts.

Share the Harvest is a magical event on November 30th that will shut down Pitt Street in Mount Pleasant and feature live music, food from local vendors, shopping and family activities. Donations will benefit the Charleston Basket Brigade.

We are already counting down the days to volunteer for this year’s Basket Brigade – it’s truly an unforgettable experience!

Ad of the Week: A World Made More Beautiful

 

If you have a case of the Mondays, we definitely suggest to watch this ad that went viral in America this week.

The majority of the commercial doesn’t even mention the brand name, but it compels the audience to keep watching throughout the entire 3:00 minute commercial – a task not easily done in today’s fast-paced world.

This ad by a Thai Life Insurance Agency has done it right, and has already garnered millions of views on social media across the world.
